Create a folder on the HD called OEBackup. Now go to my site below and click on the Software link. Scroll down to OEBackup and download and install it. Select the folder you created for the backup and run the program, backing up OE to that folder. It will back up everything associated with OE including user data.

Suppose you were an idiot. . . And suppose you were a member of Congress. . . But I repeat myself.
I got instructions some where to backup outlook express email to cd by using the C:/Windows/ApplicationData/ folder. Win 98.
I can open the cd on my computer, but can't open it on a dell with xp and outlook express.
If i delete all my messages in outlook express will i still be able to read them from the cd on my own computer?
I am not trying to restore them, i just want them saved.
Not sure why i can't read them on the other computer, when i can on mine?
I do know how to save them in text or eml but was told this was a simpler way to back up the outlook express email? These show an mbx and dbx and idx extension in the Application Data folder.
